Crisis transformed into opportunity: CM Uddhav Thackeray over two years in power | Bombay News


MUMBAI: The infrastructure put in place by the state government during the Covid pandemic is permanent in nature and will enable the state to fight various diseases and epidemics in the future, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray told the occasion of the second anniversary of his government.
Most of the government’s tenure, he said, has been spent fighting the Covid pandemic. “There is no negativity in government and administration when fighting the pandemic. We did not panic during natural and man-made disasters, rather we turned the crisis into an opportunity. Anyone can see the huge difference between health and medical infrastructure before the pandemic and now, ”Thackeray said in a written submission as he recovers from spinal surgery at a private hospital.
The government, he said, spent 2,600 rupees to modernize hospitals and 14.4 lakh of people were treated for free under Mahatma Jyotirao Phule Jan Arogya Yojana.
Referring to the infrastructure development work in the state, he said that the Mumbai-Nagpur Balasaheb Thackeray Samruddhi highway will soon be put into operation. Calling Mumbai India’s growth engine, the chief minister said the coastal road, Mumbai Trans-Harbor Link, will revolutionize travel in Mumbai and across the metropolitan area. The government, he said, is creating a strong network of roads and subways across the state while being concerned about protecting the environment.
His government, he said, is a popular government and thanked the citizens for supporting his government throughout the process. The government, he said, has fulfilled its assurance of farmer loan exemptions. Under Mahatma Jyotirao Phule Karzmukta yojana, he gave up over 20,000 crore rupees in loans, he said.
Farmers, he said, have suffered due to various natural disasters, but each time the government has offered more help than prescribed by National Disaster Respond Fund standards. The government is working on the creation of a master plan on various relief measures to be offered to farmers in the event of disasters. The government has offered financial assistance to informal sector workers who have suffered from the Covid, including orphans and women. With each police officer, his government has ensured that he will be promoted to officer.
His government, he said, is recognized internationally for its efforts to mitigate the effects of climate change. “The inspiring regional leadership award was presented to the state at the recent COP26 conference in Scotland. The state also won the maximum number of awards in the central government’s Swachchta survey, he said.
